Kevin: Day 3278


Day 3278. That's 9 years, folks. 19 to go. The year 2036 seems infinitely closer and more attainable than it did 9 years ago, not that I have ever had any major doubts throughout the streak. Though I have more doubts today, than I did on Day 1. 

I'm getting older. My body doesn't recover the same way it did in 2008. I have long stretches where I just get in the minimum 1.5 miles. And then, something will change and I'll be back to 5-10 miles a day averages. It's astonishing, the difference in my overall well being when I am on a good stretch of long runs vs short ones. It's like night and day. 

The streak has become very routine. Whereas once it was a focul point of my life, now it's just a small blip on the radar screen. I didn't even recall at the outset of today's run that it was my streak anniversary. But once I did, it brought a smile to my face. Milestones are great for perspective.
